First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We have received questions from the community about if and how COVID-19 will change this year’s soccer season. We know this outbreak has been stressful for many and recognise that exercising and participating in activities like soccer can be a healthy way to cope with stress and connect with our community. After careful thought and planning, we are excited to let you know that we plan to resume youth sports while following CDC considerations to protect players, families, and our community.
The health and safety of our athletes, staff, volunteers, and families remain our highest priority. Below, you will find a link to the policies, guidelines, protocols, and actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible while also allowing our athletes to play. Please note the COVID-19 / Communicable Disease guidelines and policies are passed down to VHSC from multiple governing bodies:
